@Yor: Thanks, but your SB is better.
Because of that I was able to get my lazy ass up again. I really need to do more color speedys.
And I want to get used to painter so I will combinde both.
I am unable to do detailed work with painter so its really good for speedpaintings.
For the start, I took the envi pencil drawing and painted over it in painter. I tried digit watercolor and some acrylics. The behavior of some of the brushes is really strange. Can I get the brushes to act like in ps ? I mean varying the brushsize and opacity with the pressure ?

Another try, same procedure. I made a sketch in the old center of my city and tried to color it with painter. I really struggeled to get a realistic flair, but it still is somkind of pale and not really convincing.
Well, I just hope it gets better soon ^^

Thanks, I am glad that it looks paint like. I would be dissappointed if it wouldnt, because the programm is called "painter" XD
Ok, some sketches of an actual project. A friend and me are planning a fantasy story with dwarfs and elfs for kids. At the moment there are only Lotr and such things, but nearly nothing for children.
Of course it is changed a little, so are the mainchars children as well. A dwarf boy and a yound elf.
They get friends and get some action when they meet a Troll in the woods.
Thats just a very rough version of the story XD
The troll was a hell of fun to do as well as the elf. But the dwarf boy was very tricky and I am still experimenting on him. And I finally used watercolor again ^^
As for the stile, I totally love the works of how to train your dragon.
But I still have problems giving the picture the right "flow" the still look stiffer then what I want to achieve.

Beautiful studies. The characters are looking nice! Maybe a bit generic. Try looking at tons of costumes, etc for design ideas. Meanwhile, keep up the awesome speed paintings - that last architectural one has a really beautiful light to it. Love this sketchbook!

Thx, because its for a children's book I didnt really do any research, but I will do that now. It can only get better ^^
Heres another speedpainting over a from-life-sketch.
I feel I get better with painter.
And a series of portraits.
I started with the b/w version, which lacked a lot of contrast before I adjusted it with the correction. I then tried to put a color layer over it but that didnt work, some other blending option brought up some way more interesting versions.

From the actual CHOW. The fallen angel Samael. I rushed the one in the final section through in about 2 hours. So I took some more time afterwards and added a couple of details.
Done in Painter, which I start to like. ^^ But for the fine details I took it back to PS.

Im pretty busy lately and unfortunately I am not allowed yet to upload pictures of my actual work. But I can show something for a personal book project I am working on.
Its for the same as the earlier troll, elbs and dwarf children. These are the parents of the dwarf boy, though they will get even more stylized and bulkier than now.
Done with pen and watercolor.

@Holland: Thank you.
Here 2 new sketches.
The first one with a photo ref, the 2nd one obviously not. I tried to get a feeling for depth effects, colors and values again, but I am not really happy wit it, but I cant point out what exactly is wrong with this one. Wrong values ? The edges maybe ?
